Last minute and first trip to Rome. Completely overwhelmed.

Ciao Chowhounders,

I am in the need of serious guidance. I have booked a trip to Rome with only 2 days notice and am besides myself going through all the postings. I leave tonight and have nothing booked yet. This is my first trip to Rome.

We are using Starwood points staying at the St. Regis. I think it is where all the other big hotels are by via veneto. I think it is nice to have one modern italian and one traditional. Not exactly on a budget, but mindful of prices. I am ok with one dinner that is more of a splurge as long as the food is out of this world.

1)I am looking for a dinner first night near the hotel.
Some ideas from the post are, Tavernetta 48, Il Bacaro, Vladimiro Ristorante (for special menu).
I have learned not to trust Trip Advisor for restaurants, but Vladimiro Ristorante does not have such hot reviews.

2) possibly dinner in Trastavere:
Options, Le Mani in Pasta (I here mixed reviews)
Roma Sparita
Antico Arco

3) third night no recommendations needed.

Thank you so much in advance.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
